Posted 30 December 2014 - 01:24 AM

I downloaded a piece of youtube/video downloader software form the Softopedia website and then tried to remove it later. One was a huge clunky piece of crap that didn't end up working but that kept asking for permissions from Comodo Firewall as I tried to get it to work

A week or two later after I tried to uninstall the programs within a few days later I started noticing that Firefox started to freeze. i though it was internet slowdown of the websites or google maps.
I then found it hard to click on the start menu and other parts of software on windows. It stated to totally freeze up until I couldn't use the mouse to click.

I tried to do a restore point and it wouldn't work. It blocked/erased the restore points up to only a few days before. It also started blocking Avast. I was only able to get a restore point from my last back up ...in May. that seemed to work after 2 days of trying different things and different malware programs

It seemed like like it worked and I removed all the antivirus and firewall and put in new one and continued using the computer. IT felt that there was still something going on as it the computer sounded weird as if its struggling. It seemed like everything was fine and I using it but I kept trying different anti malware programs.

none of them would find anything....I tried Comodo Cleaning Essentials today and it found
something in Avast

Program file\Avast\Software\Avast\ng\vbox\VBoxDD2GC.gc

When the program cleaned it the same thing started happening, it stared getting hard to use the mouse and click on programs. it started blocking the anti virus. Tried different malware removers none showed anything. It wiped is\ hiding the restore points and I had to go to the back up to redo everything again

Currently I put in all new anti virus and firewall but its BLOCKING them. It was blocking me from removing old Comodo, and I dont think it s allowing the new one.
Its blocking the Windows Security centre, but I am able to use the Windows firewall.
its blocking avast and comodo from working and stopping some malware removers

My computer is a reg computer/ workstation

Windows 7, Service Pack 1
Intel ICore i7-3820 CPU @ 3.60GHz,
RAM: 3526 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti

Motherboard: ASUS


No Antivirus is working. I was able to turn on the Windows firewall

Its disabling alot of anti malware programs, since I did this last restore point.


"Program file\Avast\Software\Avast\ng\vbox\VBoxDD2GC.gc"


I did as search for vbox and its part of Java or Oracle Virtual Box. At one point I had Java on for an online class and it was left on incase I still needed it later.


I found this bit of info at :



File information

File Name : VBoxDD2GC.gc (File not down) File Size :12672 byte File Type :application/x-dosexec MD5:2b147d966d5fb34e31ab5aa5e032dc20 SHA1:629917e3d87f85380f473216cdfb1370bc0eda0f Scanner Engine Ver Sig Ver Sig Date Scan result Time comodo 15023 5.1 2014-11-08 Heur.Packed.Unknown 3


Other programs that found it



I did find a Heur.Packed.Unknown in Comodo as part of a search from a scan program

and it showed up as Heur.Packed.Unknown@4294967295


this was in the list of virus scanners

qh360 1.0.1 1.0.1 1.0.1 Win32/Trojan.6b9 13

I think Hq360 is Norton

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps in the order listed.

Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here

Double-click mbam-setup-2.X.X.XXXX.exe to install the application (X's are the current version number).
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • Once MBAM opens, when it says Your databases are out of date, click the Fix Now button.
  • Click the Settings tab at the top, and then in the left column, select Detections and Protections, and if not already checked place a checkmark in the selection box for Scan for rootkits.
  • Click the Scan tab at the top of the program window, select Threat Scan and click the Scan Now button.
  • If you receive a message that updates are available, click the Update Now button (the update will be downloaded, installed, and the scan will start).
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • If potential threats are detected, ensure that Quarantine is selected as the Action for all the listed items, and click the Apply Actions button.
  • While still on the Scan tab, click the link for View detailed log, and in the window that opens click the Export button, select Text file (*.txt), and save the log to your Desktop.
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can also be viewed by clicking the History tab and then selecting Application Logs.

If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts.
Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process.
If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.


Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your Desktop.
  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click the Scan button and wait for the process to complete.

  • Click the Scan button and wait for the process to complete.
  • Check off the element(s) you wish to keep.
